Project Details


The overall objective of the BaltCityPrevention project is a socio-economic innovation – a model for the prevention of lifestyle-related diseases in adolescents, which is beneficial for municipalities and state institutions responsible for health promotion.

In the case of adolescents it means integrating modern information communication technology devices into health promotion activities.
